MISSED Session ONE? You can still catch up – we’ll send you the recording and join us for session 2

Are you a content vendor wishing to improve your promotional images and have always wanted to learn a whole series of tips on composition, with a class that has focus on digitally created artwork and scene building?

Or are you an artist wishing to make a greater impact with existing scenes you’ve built but are not sure on how to improve them?

This event will include a grounding in 18 essential techniques to help getting composition right for that required render that provides a super impact!

It demonstrates that composition can mean everything when it comes to telling the right story about your image.

We will be featuring the incredible work of Artur Rosa (created in E-on’s Vue) for examples of comprehensive scenes that demonstrate these composition tips and tricks in detail.

This is the type of event where it doesn’t matter which 3D Art Application you have – the need for good composition spans across any application when it comes to finally rendering your perfect scene.

There will be TWO masterclasses. One will have a focus on general or scenic composition. The second masterclass will be exclusively on portrait or character composition; very useful for making the most of any promotional images using 3D characters generated by DAZ Studio or Poser if you are selling character based content.
